They are gone, for the most part.
Remove extra debugging support that is turned on for head but turned off
for stable branches:
- shift to MALLOC_PRODUCTION
- turn off automatic crash dumps
- Remove kernel debuggers, INVARIANTS*, WITNESS* from

 INVARIANTS* left on for ia64 by request marcel
 sun4v was left as-is
